What are values?

We started our learning about values by discussing what they are. Some of us knew a little bit, and some knew a lot.

Some people knew that 'value' can be used when you talk about money, or about how much something is worth. The more we talked about the other kind of values, as principles, we realised the two were similar. These similarities were also what we decided makes a value, a value:

  • They are something important to you.
  • They are treasured.
  • They are special.
  • They can't be replaced.

We made a list of values that our families think are important and made them into a Wordle. I'm interested to see if, and how, our ideas about values might change over the term.

What do your families think values are? Which ones do they think are important?
